About this book

Jeffrey Sachs has been a leading figure in the development of the UN Millennium goals, and this extraordinary book distills the vision to end poverty that has gained momentum in the last few years.

From the publisher's announcement:

Hailed by The New York Times as `probably the most important economist in the world', Jeffrey Sachs is internationally renowned for his work around the globe advising economies in crisis. Now he draws on all he has learned from twenty-five years of work to offer a uniquely informed vision of the keys to economic success in the world today and the steps that are necessary to achieve prosperity for all.

Marrying vivid, passionate storytelling with profound, rigorous analysis, Jeffrey Sachs explains why, over the past two hundred years, wealth has diverged across the planet and why the poorest nations have so far been unable to improve their lot. He explains how to arrive at an in-depth diagnosis of a country's economic challenges and the options it faces. He leads readers along the same learning path he himself followed, telling the stories of his own work in Bolivia, Poland, Russia, India, China and Africa to bring us to a deep understanding of the challenges faced by developing nations in different parts of the world. Finally, he offers an integrated set of solutions to the interwoven economic, political, environmental and social problems that most challenge the world's poorest countries and, indeed, the world.

Ultimately, The End of Poverty leaves readers with an understanding, not just of how grave the problem of poverty is, but how solvable it is - and why making the necessary effort is a matter of both moral obligation and strategic self-interest of the rich countries. A work of astounding intellectual vision that grows out of unprecedented real-world experience, The End of Poverty is a road map to a safer, more prosperous world for us all.
